Love! Dries up pimples and reduces the redness over night leaving you with no pimple or a reduced pimple that heals and fades quicker.

Perfect for removing big pimples, but can be drying so only use it on the aggravated ones and use your normal routine with the smaller

It is awesome because it dried out your pimple over night. It is a bit pricy and it has to be handled with care, but it does its work.

This is a good alternative to the origins drying cream! It's much cheaper but I prefer the more natural approach that origins takes!

I use this on every breakout.   I like using it.  I can't say that my breakouts dry up overnight but it does help speed up the process.

It's okay. I was super excited to try this because I've only heard good things but I found that it didn't really work all that well.

I used to use this a lot. It's really good for SPOT acne, not severe cluster acne. It's affordable and minimized my pimple overnight.

I've heard a lot about this drying lotion or like other girls call it "pimple cream". How many of you have tried it and honestly have had a good out come? Would be nice to hear from the girls next door 🙂
